Understanding the difference between lost and mislaid property

Say that someone in Clarksville comes across an item that appears to have been lost, such as a cell phone, a laptop computer or a jacket. Is he or she entitled to keep whatever it is that was found? Or better yet, can the owner of that item later find that person and accuse him or her theft? The answer to these questions comes from understanding the different legal classifications of lost property.

Memphis husband and wife both arrested in domestic violence case

There is an old saying that goes “it takes two to tango.” Many in Clarksville may often cite it in cases of assault where one is accused of attacking another. While it may be viewed as justification for the actions of some, few would likely subscribe to that line of thinking in a case involving domestic violence. The reason behind this is the assumption held by many that a man should never use violence against a woman. Yet often, impartial parties may recognize cases where, even though an incident may have occurred between a couple, blatant aggression by one or the other may not have been present.

Can you cite self-defense after having used a gun?

The term “self-defense” is seemingly brought up so often in criminal cases that you and others in Clarksville may give no credence to it all. Yet are there situations where the use of force (including using a gun) is indeed legally justified? The problem with citing self-defense as a defense to prosecution is that many may view your definition of being in danger as subjective. Others may try and portray you as being “trigger happy” by the mere fact that you own a gun. It is a good thing, then, that Tennessee state law clearly defines the scenarios where self-defense is justified.

Reviewing Tennessee’s implied consent law

Like most in Clarksville, your introduction to the state’s DUI laws likely only comes after you have been arrested and charged with such a crime. That is why many come to us here at Runyon and Runyon surprised after having automatically faced criminal penalties for refusing to submit to field sobriety tests. You may believe that it is well within your rights to refuse such tests, or that you at least may be able to wait to do them after having spoken to a lawyer. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Dealing with a hostile shared custody situation

If a divorcing couple in Clarksville has children together, one of the harsh realities that both must deal with is the fact that they will be forced to continue to collaborate in raising their kids. Some may think that the animosity shared between a separated couple could make pursuing shared custody a bad idea. However, research information shared by the America Coalition for Fathers and Children shows that kids benefit from having shared residential custody even when their parents are not on good terms.
